For Borussia Dortmund manager Edin Terzi, Jamie Bynoe-Gittens (unknown injury), Thomas Meunier (muscle injury), Julien Duranville (muscle partial avulsion), and Mateu Morey Bauzà (fitness) are unavailable.
The 4-3-3 formation, which includes Gregor Kobel, Julian Ryerson, Niklas Süle, Mats Hummels, Tom Rothe, Jude Bellingham, Emre Can, Julian Brandt, Donyell Malen, Sebastien Haller, and Karim Adeyemi, is what we believe Dortmund will deploy.
Only one player’s fitness is a problem for Daniel Farke, the Gladbach manager, out of a group that is generally healthy. Marcus Thuram (Torn Muscle Fibre) won’t be participating in the game. Due to his suspension, Alassane Plea cannot participate in this game.
By selecting Jan Olschowsky, Stefan Lainer, Ko Itakura, Nico Elvedi, Ramy Bensebaini, Julian Weigl, Manu Koné, Nathan N’Goumou, Florian Neuhaus, Jonas Hofmann, and Semir Telalovic, we believe Gladbach will most likely play in a 4-2-3-1 formation.
In our opinion, Borussia Dortmund should be able to convert a couple of the opportunities that they create and will likely maintain control for extended periods of time. Borussia Mönchengladbach will face challenges scoring goals, but we see them doing so as well.
